'Twas Con's 6th Birthday today.
The overwhelming emotion is pride. He's growing into exactly the sort of kid I want him to be - exemplified by a phone call from my brother tonight, when unprompted, Connor first asked to speak with "Auntie Debi" (my bro's better half), and the proceeded to thank her "very much" for his present from them both.
Debi, having only been seeing my bro' for just over a year, and having met Con maybe half a dozen times if you're lucky, was completely made up by this.
And he's just that type of kid. Is he mischevious? Yes. Does he get into trouble at school? Yes. Does he let us down occasionally? Yes. But overall, he has a big heart, a lot of kindness and consideration, and a constant happiness and joie de vivre that makes him a pleasure to be around.
I love him.
